Well I've finally given up!!! At one time I had a Remington left hand sps varmint in 17 fireball & yes I let it get away on me. I've been searching ever since for another one to no avail. Tried to find an H&R to do a barrel stub project & haven't found one of those either, everyone seems to think that because there not produced anymore that there collector pieces, geeezez!!! Ok I'll order a contender & wait??? Not available in 17 fireball, would have to order an action from one place & a bbl from another & no one will quote a price????? Some Canadian gun shops won't import along with some in the USA won't export. Dam dam dam!!!! Well I found a savage right hand mod 25 in 17 hornet. I know there fugly!!! But they have a separate bolt head like the savage 110 so I can get a bolt head for a 223 & have a 17 fireball reamer run in it & I have my fireball. Not sure if it will feed from the 223 or 204 clip or not but I will find out before I attempt it. Although at this point I may just use it as a single shot with an adapter (epoxy) in place! Maybe someday I'll find my needle in a hay stack but until then I've got my fireball. Bill out. πŸΎπŸ‘£πŸΎπŸ‘£πŸΎπŸ‘£πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

PS now I can use my die set & the 400 cases I've squirrelled away along with several 17 cal bullets that we're getting tarnished in the loading bench for so long. Wish me luck!!!! Bill out πŸΎπŸ‘£πŸΎπŸ‘£πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Redgwell has managed to get what he wanted, though the exercise has been fraught with Peril and hampered by multiple delays. You might want to check with him about how to accomplish your next notion.

Match grade Machine will build you a 17 Fireball barrel.


Shoot low Sheriff, they're riding shetlands.

There wasn't a need for fact checkers until the truth started getting out.

Thanks guys for the help. Will MGM export though, not sure but I'll look into this for now. Got the savage 25 for cheap cheap, & a reamers not to much plus I'll have the reamer after. I'd like to have a nice rifle but this is for a truck gun that will get handled pretty rough. Things are getting pretty settled even up here so a quieter gun is needed, sad but true. Even when we're running coyotes if someone new wants to hunt with us the rule is nothing larger than 223! Unless we're hunting up north more then bring what you want, but use some discretion, our gang is welcomed everywhere we go because we're big on public relations, especially with the farmers. There is another gang though and they go we're ever they see fit!!! Permission or not. Makes it bad for all. Truly hope the next generations get to hunt but there filling the regulations with more and more hoops to jump through, sad!!! Anyway thanks for the suggestions I'll look into them. Bill out. πŸ‘£πŸΎπŸ‘£πŸΎπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Steve Regwell (check my spelling of his last name) from here on the fire can help you here. There is an importer that will bring it in but I don't know who it is.

Man too bad you're North of the border. I have one of those LH 17FB I've been considering selling just sitting in the safe.


What stands in the way, is the way.

I'm north of the border too, but I have imported a few guns. If GPWGUY wants to import, it is super simple. He should talk to Prophet River in Lloydminster AB. They charge a flat import rate and take care of all the paperwork. You just send the rifle to a registered FFL dealer that works with them. Super slick!

Thanks guys! After I play with this gun I'm going to get serious and talk to prophet River. He, well someone there was a big help with finding the best clip replacement for a mod. 700 remington LH in 6mm bench rest. Hey bassi what would you want for the LH fireball and would you consider sending it to specific FFL dealer??? I've looked at them on gun broker and most want double of what I paid up here in Canucka Stan. Just curious, thanks again guys!!! I think I'll stick to the contender idea, want something handy for the truck and may get a 30-30 bbl in the future. Can ya get a 20ga bbl for a contender??? Bill out. πŸ‘£πŸΎπŸ‘£πŸΎπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦
